10 Stories Everyone Loves That Will Have a Remake

It happens so often that when our favorite movies end, we are left depressed and thinking, “It is so sad that it’s over!” And it is so great when directors, producers, and scriptwriters decide to make their fans happy and say, “We’re sorry it’s over too. So, let’s just start it all over again!” This is probably how remakes happen.

We at Bright Side heard that, for example, the Disney company is going to shoot remakes of their classic cartoons. Home Alone, Tom and Jerry, and The Lord of the Rings are just a few films that are going to be rebooted very soon. And even the Breaking Bad show is likely to get a full-length film. But we’ll tell you about that later.

The remake of this film is going to be released in summer 2020. At the moment, you can watch the trailer. But there is almost no information about the story. The only thing we know now is that this time the Ghostbusters will be way younger than in the original films.

Finn Wolfhard is going to play one of the main roles. You probably remember him from Stranger Things where he has actually appeared in the Ghostbusters costume.

It was in 2012 when the sequel of Twins with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito was going to be released. One of the fans thought it would be great if Jason Momoa played the main role together with Peter Dinklage. Jason Momoa liked the idea because he loves the original comedy and he was ready to sign the contract.

But in fact, Momoa and Dinklage are not very likely to play the roles of the famous brothers. The remake will be titled Triplets and the same actors will play the leading roles. As far as we know, Eddie Murphy will join them in the remake.

Bonus: It looks like Breaking Bad is going to have a full-length movie.

The fans of this iconic criminal show started to suspect this after the actors who played the main roles, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, posted identical pictures of mules on their Twitter page with the caption: “Soon.”

Mules are drug dealers and this is a direct reference to the popular show. This is why the fans thought that this was a teaser for the upcoming movie.

Of course, this is not all the information we have. Hollywood media heard reports about the production of a full-length movie back in 2018. So, it’s probably just that the creators have finally started making the film.

Honestly, while we were making this list, we really wanted to start visiting movie websites every day to at least find some details about what these new shows and films will look like. Which ones are you looking forward to watching?
